anyone rushing out to replace their GT3 with EV……?  Didn’t think so.  Cool looking thing but does nothing to stir the soul.

Its an unpleasant squeak. !

It's a no way in comparison to a naturally combusting engine, doesn't mater how fast it goes  on the track. SORRY.

*1896*  You won't see me giving up my custom Amish modified sulky.  The smell of horseshit is part of the visceral experience... petroleum just won't win the average punter over.

Ironically there was a period of time ~110 years ago where there were roughly equal numbers of petrol and electrIc cars made, and it was uncertain which would win out.

Sounds like (and is probably just as appealing as) a dentist's drill 🤢 

Or the washing machine on the 1200 spin cycle

But I’d have a go at driving one before making the call.

And Porsche was an electric player at the time wasn't it?

He designed the world's first hybrid (1900), and his first car was all electric in 1898.

History that most people have forgotten.

Maybe not but this happened,  https://www.hotcars.com/porsche-is-selling-more-taycans-than-911s/ that sound is horrid, could not even watch the whole video, I hope the Taycan has a different sound.

...but is that just because they made more Taycans? At the moment they can't deliver cars so I don't think 2021 figures can give a clear picture.

Tyre roar and wind noise at least in a Taycan 4S is what you hear, there is no whine. If you have it optioned, it makes this noise like something out of a sci-fi movie. Interestingly the optional sound was slightly different between the Taycan and the Cross Turismo. I drove each of them 3 or 4 months apart.
